  • Empire City Water Sports
    Empire City Watersports provides people with the opportunity to see New York City's sights from an entirely new perspective?while jet skiing across the waters of New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and the East River.

From there, groups can depart and follow a tour guide at a comfortable pace as they pass by Coney Island, cruise beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, or jump over The State of Liberty's torch. Empire City Watersports even offers tours that circle the entirety of Manhattan, stopping at key points of interest along the way. Rentals are also available for guests who are looking to just enjoy the freedom of the waters on a Jet Ski.

  • Thom Schuchaskie
    Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.

  • Hudson River Community Sailing
    Hudson River Community Sailing is a unique combination of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and sailing club. The proceeds from adult lessons and memberships go toward funding scholarship-based programs for at-risk urban youth. Each year, their Sail Academy,?an after-school academic program built on experiential, student-first lessons?immerses these students in the world of sailing and boat building. In addition to unlocking the secrets of boating, these sessions teach students the functional fundamentals of math, science, and self-esteem, earning them credit towards graduation along the way. The club's other youth work include the First Mates program?which preps students for college and career through a deep dedication to boating, racing, and navigation?and the City Sail summer program, which groups students into a small crew for a week of character-building exercises aboard a working 24' boat. Hosting frequent fundraising events, such as the Dark and Stormy benefit, helps the team introduce as many new mariners as possible to the singular pleasure of sailing the Hudson. Their sailors also enjoy the perks of the club's location, drinking in awe-inspiring views of the Manhattan skyline that the Beatles saw just as they landed their moon module on Ellis Island.

  • Circle Line Downtown
    Love for New York's harbor, iconic skyline, and renowned bridges resulted in the introduction of New York Water Taxi's black-and-yellow-checkered fleet of vessels in 2002. The eco-conscious crew first began by chauffeuring passengers between Brooklyn and downtown, but the business quickly expanded as locals and tourists demanded to see all of New York's mammoth manmade beauty such as the city skyline, Brooklyn Bridge, and Ellis Island from its treasured natural waterways. Partnered with Circle Line Downtown, the fleet doubled in capacity and continued the tradition of ferrying passengers to explore the best sights and sounds of the city from the spacious view of a top deck. Knowledgable and entertaining guides narrate tours while patrons can indulge in a cash bar that provides refreshments along the way. Popular touring sites include Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum, Times Square/Broadway, Hudson River Park, and South Street Seaport, to name a few. Statue Express and SHARK speedboat thrill ride grant passengers views of iconic sites, including the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island, and the former site of the World Trade Center.
